It's no secret that times are tough in tech, but the industry's top dog has been consistently optimistic about its own situation.

Unfortunately for the employees, it's only a matter of time.

Bu...bu....but Microsoft has $15 billion in cash reserves, the company is economically invulnerable. This story must be false.

wasn't there a thing on this site about Sony cutting 6000 - 8000 stuff and all the 360 fan boys jumping up and down about that???

Yeah, but this is different. See, the thing with Microsoft is that their greatness is second only to The Lord Almighty so a few thousand redundancies mean nothing. Sony on the other hand are about 2 weeks away from going completely bankrupt so them cutting jobs is obviously an indication of just how close to dropping they are.

At least that's what N4G told me... And N4G wouldn't lie, would it?

I do Remember Seeing a MS Layoff Article that came a few days ago and saw Ps3 Fanboys Jumping up and down about that. It goes both way.

It is unfortunate that anybody has to lose a job, regardless if it is from MS, Sony or any other area. All these people have families or people they have to take care of.

It is a sad state of affairs the world is in now, hopefully things turn around real soon.

Now see, that wasn't so hard was it?

Put away the fanboy crap for just one minute, and suddenly matters such as this take a higher precedence on the attention scale.
